My favourite crop of the year is currently being harvested though - Purple Sprouting Broccoli.
If you grow two or three different types of Broccoli you can extend the harvest period. Don't be tempted to buy a mixed pack though. I did this once and raised eight plants - seven of which turned out to be of the same variety. I suppose if you are planning to grow dozens of them a mixed pack might be OK. (Anyone good enough at Maths to work out how many you would need to sow to ensure getting at least one of each plant, from a pack containing 3 different types?)
When harvesting PSB the best thing to do is cut the central ("apical") head or growing-point first. This will promote the growth of stronger and more numerous side-shoots.
Apart from the broccoli, just about everything else is at the small seedling stage. This is a scene with which many gardeners will be all too familiar!

I have also sown some of the seeds that Diana from Kebun Malay-Kadazan Girls kindly sent me. I sowed one pot of Chervil and one of Aquilegia. Here they are sitting on the windowsill of our spare bedroom (with a nice view of Mark's Veg Plot down below...) Thanks, Diana. I'll let you know how they do.
